The new and improve Atomic Punx is just for you punks that are ripping up the park, and showing the ski bunnies what you are made of. The rocker profile has slight tip and tail rocker, with 80% camber underfoot. The tip and tail rocker make your take offs and landings much easier, and you dont have to worry about catching your edges on the in-run. The camber underfoot will give you the spring you need for launching yourself higher than you have ever been before, either out of the pipe, or off of a huge kicker. A new Stomp Sidecut has a larger radius in the tip and tail, to help you steer your way up the walls of a freshly cut pipe easier, and a smaller radius underneath the binding platform to lower the swing weight of the ski, and give you a bigger platform for stomping landings. The new Punx rocks the Step Down Sidewall 2.0 that has a one piece construction with the solid Wood Core to make your skis more durable, give you stronger edge hold, and more shock absorbing power. Atomics Resist Edge 2.2 is larger and stronger than ever before to protect your skis from the damage you are going to do on rail and boxes. A symmetrical shape and sidecut will help you ski and land switch. If you are looking for a top notch park ski so you can up your game even more, do it on the Atomic Punx, you punk.
Kyle here with the (Atomic) Punx. I give this ski a 4 out of 5. It's just as good as last year, now it's just got a little bit of tip and tail rocker, so it's easier to release when you're doing spins or getting on and off rails. It's still easy to ski around the mountain, but you're going to mainly want to ski just in the park with this, I feel. It would be more or less for really a park skier who might take a couple runs on the mountain all over, but mainly stay in the park. Gotta give this 4 out of 5.
Troy here. I just got done skiing the Atomic Punx. I'll definitely give this ski a 5 out of 5. It's for the advanced to expert park and pipe skier. Also skis great on the groom runs, great for all around ski, everywhere on the hill. It's got a lot of push back to it. Great with the short tight turns. You can really lay some long ones on too, it's got great edge control and support at high speeds.
I'm Steve and I just got done riding the Atomic Punx. I was really excited about this ski all around. Edge-to-edge control was awesome. Loved the stiffness. Great at high speeds, great at switch high speeds. The list goes on. This ski pretty much nailed everything. Overall, I give it 5 out of 5 stars for sure.
Evan here. Just got off the Atomic Punx. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. It's going to be your go-to park and pipe ski. Nice and stable. Still forgiving at the same time. Nice and poppy. It would be great on the rails and jumps and on the hard pack. It's going to be for your intermediate to advanced skier and it's a great ski.
Kyle here with the Atomic Punx. I'm going to give these skis a 4.5 out of 5. I really like these skis. These particular ones are 182 so, it's a bit big for me, but anything in the 170 area would be great. Not too stiff, really good ski for your park intermediate to expert skier.

Q: Hi Blue-TomatoI
I have been looking at both the Punx and the Infamous but I cannot decide which one to get. I'm probably skiing park 70% of the time and piste and off piste for the rest of the time, so which one would you recommend for me?
Also regarding the length I cannot decide between 176 og 182. I'm 185 cm tall and weigh 73 kg. Which size should I then get?
A: Based on the type of skiing you will be doing, I would recommend going with the Atomic Punx's over the Infamous'. They will be a bit stiffer overall and will provide a more responsive ski for when you are not in park. Based on your stats I would put you in the 176cm length, as that would already be a bit longer than the ideal range I would put you into (between 167cm and 172cm).
